Who invented the front walkover and when was it made?

The front walkover was invented by Ellayna Mackenzie Jones when she was six years old. She was trying to do a handstand and flipped over. It was originally named the handstand flip, but when Ellayna told the gymnastic experts about the name she came up with, they thought the name should be improved. It was officially named the "front walkover" and the country approved of it in 1934.

What stretches do you need to do to be flexible enough for a walkover?

You don't necessarily need to be flexible for a walkover. For a front walkover you want to have a solid handstand bridge come up and good stomach muscles. For a balk walkover you want to have a good handstand bride kick over and flexible shoulders. It would help if you had one of your splits to make it look nicer:)

How do you do a walk-over in gymnastics?

Take it one foot at a time, place your best foot in front of the other, lean back, and push off!Thats a back walkover and a front walkover is simply just a handstand taken one foot at a time and pushed over to land. These moves do require practice so dont just go out and try it right away. Get help from a coach or gymnastics spotter. Hope my answer helped a little!
